[QUOTE=majorca veteran;94885]I may have commented on something like this in the past. Is this the start of the slippery slope which will bring PP down to the level of some of the less desirable resorts on the island? MAJORCA VETERAN:[/


There do appear to be a lot of slippery slopes on that monstrosity! I feel another petition coming on

Just can't see why this is necessary for PP? It just isn't that kind of resort. The island as a whole caters pretty much for every taste so it could be sited elsewhere.

Nothing snobby about not wanting it, I just believe that PP could begin to lose its identity with such things. Keep it as it is I say, that's why people holiday and buy here.

I do believe that PP needs wet weather facilities for children, something like a "play barn".

Funnily enough when thinking about how we could live and work in PP a few years ago we both came up with the idea for an indoor play barn. I think if someone were brave enough to set one up it would be very lucrative?

Just wish I had the bottle!

Yes it was called Fantasy World but as far as I remember there wasn't enough demand for it. I assume that's why it shut.

Spotted from the beach today... The water park has arrived We were on the beach at Pinaret so haven't seen it close up, but I think it's beyond Tamarells at Llenaire. Will drive up tomorrow for a closer look and report back!

They were inflating it on the beach early yesterday morning. I think it's a good thing to have, hopefully on the area of beach I like to go to everyone will be down by the " water park " thingy..
